HPU’s Art Gallery recently announced
its exhibition schedule for 2007-08 and opened its first exhibition
of year, paintings by Janetta Nap, July 22 at the windward
Nap presents, she said, “selections from a body of recent
paintings exploring organic and scientific themes characterized
by rich and subtle mixtures of color and brushwork.”
The HPU Art Gallery has exhibted the work of local artists since
Hawai‘i Loa College and HPU merged about 15 years ago.
This year’s exhibitions offer a wide variety of themes
and art forms, from DNA: Digital Nature Analog to A Sky Inside
Me, mixed up with HPU’s own annual juried exhibition of
art from artists within the University community.
Acording to Lynne Ledward, administrative assistant for Student
Affairs and coordinator for the gallery, artists for exhibitions
are selected at an annual meeting of an HPU Art Gallery Board
(consisting of HPU staff, local artists, and gallery curator,
Sanit Khewhok). The board reviews many portfolios before selecting
a slate of artists for exhibition in any given year.
Ledward said she enjoys all the exhibits and is not particular
looking forward to any single exhibition. “I know they
are all good,” she said.
The HPU Art Gallery is located on the winward campus. Gallery
hours are Monday through Saturday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Admission is
free and the public is invited. For more information call 687-7017.
